iRobot Roomba 620 issue

Postby Gelaride » December 26th, 2018, 8:44 am

Hi guys,
I have an iRobot Roomba 620 which has worked fine for more than 2 years now, but recently I started noticing some issues with it and I was wondering if you guys can point me in the right direction. Basically instead of going all the way till he reaches an obstacle, he turns around after ~2 seconds of going forward and then it does that repeatedly. I think it is something similar to the ‘circle of death’ issue I came across on youtube/google, but I want to know for sure. Do you guys have any ideas about what this might be?

Download the 500 model service manual here: ... Manual.pdf

Read how to place your 620 into the Built in test mode. Enter MANUAL BiTs mode and check your Roomba sensors.
